    Assistance

    If you are a victim of an assault, theft, criminal mischief, domestic violence, lewdness, or any other violent crime, you are not alone.

    We are here to help every victim and every family member get the services they need; we want to treat every case as a chance to help diminish the impact of crime in the community
    and to remember that every victim is a person with unique needs. Our victim services program is here to help you understand the criminal justice system, help you identify helpful community resources, make a claim for restitution, file a protective order, file for assistance for Crime Victims Reparations, and assist you through the entire court process.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Can the victim of a crime dismiss charges once they have been filed against a defendant?
    A: No. Once charges have been filed, it is the city that is prosecuting the defendant, not the victim. The only people that can dismiss the case are the prosecutor or the Judge. It is under their discretion how to proceed with the case.

    Q: I am the victim of a crime and I don’t want to go to court, when do I have to go?
    A: You do not have to come to court unless we subpoena you to be present. Usually if you are subpoenaed it is for a trial that we need you to testify at. We will take certain precautions to make sure that you are safe while you are at court. There are waiting rooms that you can wait in until it is your turn to testify so you do not have to sit in the court room with the defendant.

    Q: Can I still turn in my Victim Impact Statement even though it is past the listed date?
    A:
    Yes, you can turn the Victim Impact Statement in up until the defendant is sentenced. We would prefer to have it in before then, but if you are unable to give us the information prior to the listed date just get it to us as soon as possible.

    Q: I have questions on filling out the Victim Impact Statement, is there someone that can help me fill it out?
    A: Yes. Call the Roy City Victim Advocate at 801-774-1008. They can either help you over the phone or you can make an appointment to come in.

    Q: The defendant in my case was ordered to pay court ordered restitution, how do I get my money?
    A: The defendant pays either the court or the probation department and they will forward the money onto you. If you have questions on whether a payment has been made or not contact the court at 801-774-1051

    Q: Will I get my restitution paid back to me all at once or in payments?
    A: Restitution will come in payments as ordered by the court. The defendant will be put on a payment plan according to how much they can realistically pay. It will take some time to start to see your restitution being paid back in full.
